The "C. S. A." --An old friend of ours, Lt. John Peinbroke Jones, of the United States Navy, arrived in New Orleans a few days ago from Africa, where he has been stationed, and on seeing a flag floating on one of the schooners near him, asked of a bystander what it meant, and, on being told that it was the flag of the Southern Confederacy, and that the Union had been dissolved, he immediately repaired to a hotel, disrobed himself of his United States apparel, wrote his resignation, sent itold that it was the flag of the Southern Confederacy, and that the Union had been dissolved, he immediately repaired to a hotel, disrobed himself of his United States apparel, wrote his resignation, sent it to Lincoln, and took the first boat to Mobile en route for the seat of the new Government, at which he arrived and reported himself for immediate duty. Lieut. Jones was one of the most-efficient men in the old navy, and will be of great service to our Government.--Montgomery Confederation.
